Tip of the Week - Photoshop
I created this Fall layout for the recent Creative Charms Blog Hop. I am not usually overly concerned and don't usually try to match my photos to the papers I pick out but on this one - they really clashed. So after creating the layout I am going to reprint my photos using a duotone effect in Photoshop. Thought I would share how to do this.
Step 1 - Open up your photo in Photoshop
Step 2 - Under Image/Mode Select Grayscale
Step 3 - Go back to Image/Mode and Select Duotone
Step 4 - It will bring up a box. I kept mine black and for my second color I picked a gold color. You change the color by clicking on the square of color. Play around with different options until you find a good color combination.
Here is my layout with the duotone photos in place:
Gives it a whole different look for sure! All the cuts on the page are from SVG Cuts and Embellishments from Creative Charms. Thanks for stopping by.
